kandi X-RAY | rsync_backup Summary

rsync_backup is a Python library typically used in Backup Recovery, Continuous Backup applications. rsync_backup has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities and it has low support. However rsync_backup build file is not available. You can download it from GitHub.

Wrapper around rsync which creates incremental backups using the 'link-dest' feature of rsync, so it is creating hardlinks. It checks whether the destiation is correctly mounted to ensure that the backup goes into the right location. It saves the log-files of each backup together with the backup itself for later debugging. The script features a 'statdir' which can help you to track when the last backup was done even if the target-drive is currently not plugged in. This works by writing the backup-timestamps into a folder on your harddisk. To distinguish between mulptile drives, you must first create a '.drive_id' file in the root of the device which contains a unique-identifier of this backup-device. The script is designed for use as a user to backup the home-directory or parts of it. It is not meant to backup a whole system. Instructions: - Set LOGFILE to a appropriate location - Add one or multiple backup-jobs to the CONFIG array.

            BASH How to improve performance of JSON parsing with jq
            Asked 2022-Jan-06 at 17:51

            Context: I have a scenario where I need to perform copies of backups from one system to another. I want the backups list to be configurable, so I went with a JSON approach inside the script itself.

            The list contains key (name of the backup to show in output), user to ssh with, and path to get the backup from.
